For those of us that have Graco strollers please read the following news regarding an important recall announcement made this week.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced this week a voluntary recall of Graco's Quattro Tour and travel systems and MetroLite Strollers after four recent infant deaths due to the risk of entrapment and strangulation.
This recall applies to Graco Quattro Tour strollers and travel systems made before November 2006 and MetroLite strollers and travel systems created before July 2007. These products were sold nationwide online and in stores between November 2000 and December 2007.
To determine if your stroller is affected by this recall check for the model number printed on a label on the lower portion of the rear frame above the rear wheels or underneath the stroller.
Numerous model numbers are included in the following link below to help you be more certain if your strolle is impacted. The list of products recalled is available HERE.
While some of the model numbers are very close to what's on recall please know that the Quattro and MetroLite strollers ending with the number "3" are NOT affected at all by this recall. Whew!!! Thankfully, my stroller is not affected.
If your stroller is affected by this recall the good news is that you don't have to return it. FREE repair kits are being made available by Graco to help remedy the recalled strollers. First, stop using your stroller. Second, contact Graco toll free at 1-877-828-4046 or go the company's website at www.gracobaby.com to secure a free repair kit. Once you have received and repaired your stroller then you encouraged to use it again.
